5.0 out of 5 stars Troubles over, you've crossed over... February 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Before all the hip hop, there was a lady and a true songbird by the name of Whitney whose elegance was evident in her style and grace and whose effortless vocals sent shivers down one's spine. Her rendition of the Spar Spangled Banner was flawless and remains unparalleled to this day.

I remember hearing the single, "I Look To You" on the radio when it first aired. I had to pull over. I was so overcome by the fact that even after all her struggle, she still had "it." You have to listen without bias, without preconceived notions and let go the former impressions of the young Whitney. This is the elder statesman, if you will, making her final bow and telling you a bit about her newfound strength with an understanding of her own weaknesses and faults. Listen! This is not the young Whitney, vying for your approval. She knows she is nearing the end of her career and yet she has a few more things to share for those who still want to listen. God graced her vocal chords one last time with more soul and humanity, in spite of it all.

There will never be another "Voice" like Miss Houston. Larry King compared her to Judy Garland in that they both had the innate ability to make the listener feel what they were singing because their life was in their voice. Billie Holiday possessed the same gifting. May she now rest in peace and all prayers and positive thoughts go out to her Mother, Cissy Houston and 19 year old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Houston.

Thanks for all the memories and beautiful music, Miss Houston. Your music and style will live on.

If you're looking for the old Whitney when you get this CD, then you'll be disappointed. The range and caliber of her voice has inarguably deteriorated (I'm not going to speculate into all the debatable reasons why, but I'm sure a part of it has to do with age, vocal nodules, etc). As a result, the songs on this album seemed to have been chosen to fit with Whitney's new, much more limited voice. You won't find an I Will Always Love You or All the Man I Need song on this album. That's just not happening. At first listen, I was a little disappointed with many of the songs. But that was because I was comparing 40something Whitney to 20something Whitney, and I was expecting more ballads, even though few people nowadays even sing them. But on second listen, taking the album for what it was, not comparing her to who she was, but simply listening to the music, I realized this is an excellent album. So from this point in the review, I'll be talking about the songs on the album itself, not how Whitney of today compares with Whitney of yesteryear.

Of the two slow, ballad-like songs on the album only I Look To You is worth listening to. Though I love the message in I Didn't Know My Own Strength, it's a pretty mundane ballad and Whitney's voice is nearly monotonous throughout the entire song. No "wow" moments in there. It was great for getting her messge out, but I doubt you'll be putting it on repeat. On the other hand, her vocals in I Look To You are delivered much more soothingly, with much more impassioned vocals. It's also a very well-written song, R Kelly did a wonderful job on both lyrics and composition.

Most of the other songs pretty much fit with the trend of today's music: dance/club songs. Million Dllar Bill straddles the line between good and great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Back Whitney! August 31, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Whitney's absence from the music scene has been well chronicled by others and there's no need to revisit all of that gossip here. The question is whether I Look To You makes for a great listening experience.

And the answer is most certainly YES!

Back with strong vocals, albeit in a more limited range, Whitney's newest album is a new sound but still an enjoyable listen. Huskier and more gravelly than we remember, her voice is still The Voice and we should rejoice in a new era rather than mourn the passing of the past.

Its tempting to read more into her lyrics than perhaps she intended, but thats what great music allows for.

When she sings the title cut "I Look to You" by R. Kelly, which some have called churchy and schmaltzy, I wonder who she is really singing to...God? Perhaps...but maybe its really intended for her daughter whom she has credited with bringing her strength during her time away. I know I looked to mine as I conquered a period of depression and substance abuse in my life. "Who on earth can I turn to? I look to you...". Thank you Bobbi Christina!

On the track "Like I Never Left" with Akon we might think she is speaking to a former lover, but I wonder: is she really talking to Clive Davis? Her snubs of him were famous in the early 2000s and she eventually turned away from his guiding hand. Her last studio album, Just Whitney, was produced not by Clive but by Bobby Brown. And it was a dismal disappointment. Is Clive's girl back, and back on top? Lets hope so.

I have read most of the reviews of this album on here and in the print and online media and the thing that strikes me is how each track is a favorite of different writers, which speaks to the consistent strength of the entire album.

I can't believe it either. I didn't even hear about it until about four hours after she passed. I just hope that she has finally been able to find peace. God bless her, and her family.
